Forgive you? You'll be lucky if I THREEgive you!

Hey all! I don't blog much these days, but I'm hoping to be a bit more regular (and exciting) in the future! I'm still unemployed, still out of school, still out of money, still applying for jobs. But I'm smiling, and that's progress indeed!!

I got a kick-ass care package from Casey this week that did wonders for my mood (and my belly!), so as soon as I'm done here I'm going to go put a movie on and nibble on some treats!

 I went to the thrift store today to drop off a bag of clothes and to help Katherine pick out some shirts (she was unprepared for the coldness of Ellensburg's subarctic climate!) and ended up with an adorable little hat. 

It smells like thrift store, so I need to wash it. I have needed a hat since I moved here. It is very cold here, and hoods act as a funnel for the cold air, and beanies don't have visors, so they don't protect my specs from the driving rain. People don't use umbrellas in the Pacific Northwest (because it's always so windy), and I can't stand walking with smudged glasses, or trying to dry them off when I get inside! So, I spent $3 on a hat, and I'm sure since I'll be walking everywhere once I finally get a job, it will be one of the best (and cutest) investments I've ever made.

Here's the cutest kitten I've ever seen in my life. I plan to get a kitty (or two) when I can afford food and litter. I need a little companion, have wanted a pet for years, and have decided that I'm ready to have one as soon as I am employed. Which will hopefully be soon! I'm BORED!

My Pre died a few weeks ago - well, really only the screen died, which was enormously frustrating as I couldn't read or even send texts, and have been unable to successfully transfer data because I need the screen in order to make the software work properly (stupid touchscreens!). I was panicked because I obviously cannot afford a new phone, but HAVE to have one in order to get a job. Fortunately I had an upgrade option which was TOTALLY free. I didn't have to pay for activation or even shipping. So now I have a Pixi, and I love it! The camera sucks, and it IS slightly frustrating to have had to downgrade to one that is so appallingly bad (as you can see by the picture of me in the hat - that's the best picture I've taken with it). However, I love everything else about it (more than I loved my Pre), and it was FREE. It was such a spot of good fortune, I'm so pleased with it!

Tomorrow I have a Halloween party and I couldn't be more excited! I made my costume using some old boxes and my artistic skills, and cannot wait to finish it and get pictures up. I know that no one will be as excited about it as I am, but it makes me so happy I sit around giggling just thinking about it! I'll post pictures and a play-by-play recap at some point (hopefully Saturday or Sunday)!!
